Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
International Flower Bulb Centre
Keeled garlic is grown for its spider-like clusters of red-purple, bell-shaped flowers which appear in late spring to midsummer atop tall leafless stems. Its foliage is fine, grassy and green and disappears after the flowers set seed.
This bulbous, clump forming perennial is native to Central and southern Europe, Turkey, and Russia, where it thrives in full sun average soil. Plant it in the fall in a well-drained location under three to four inches of soil. Keeled garlic is a fast grower and best suited to informal plantings. Like most alliums, its blooms make great long-lasting cut-flowers. Plants have a tendency to self-sow.
